Concepts is a Boston shop that specializes in exclusive collaborations and limited edition merchandise with designer brands. Earlier this year, Concepts released their Nike SB â€œLobsterâ€ Dunk sneaker to celebrate the seafood heritage of New England. This red-ish shoe was designed to resemble a lobster - complete with a blue lobster claw rubber band.
Implications - Sneaker companies continue to come out with inspiring and extremely outrageous designs. While designer, rock star and sports-inspired shoes are commonplace, there are even more extravagant designs inspired by unusual oddities. Most of the population will respond to celebrity-endorsed shoes because they are unique; however, truly bizarre designs will cater to true sneaker heads who will embrace shoes of any kind.
